This volume examines the state-of-the-art in our understanding of the aging brain through the application of brain imaging techniques of neuroscience to the geriatric population. By exploring the neurobiological aspects of geriatric mental health, scientists can begin to understand why abnormal aging happens and what can be done to treat it.
In August 1876, Jack Jones, a reporter for a Chicago newspaper, is assigned to write about the doings of Deadwood, Dakota Territory—an illegal gold camp that knows no law. The lure of gold in the Lakota’s Black Hills draws prospectors and many colorful characters, such as Al Swearengen, Calamity Jane, Colorado Charlie Utter, Seth Bullock, Madame…
Researchers in the fields of geriatric psychiatry, cognitive neuropsychology, neurology, neuroradiology, and physics have combined their expertise to present this accessible, compact review of the field. The chapter authors discuss the use of image modalities and what they can tell us about the aging brain; and present cutting-edge information on image processing and data analysis in the context of geriatric populations. With this book, both novice and seasoned investigators can gain fresh, new insight into geriatric mental health.

Single photon emission computed tomography) and PET (positron emission tomography) to geriatric mental health
Structural brain changes associated with normal aging
Functional neuroanatomy of aging and cognition
